This Is TASTE 302: Joshua Weissman

Joshua Weissman is one of the strongest (and largest) voices on the food internet and the host of a series of YouTube shows that clock more than eight million subscribers. He has an abounding love of food and proper technique, and we get into what makes a great cooking video, how Joshua likes to spend his off time in Austin, Texas, and his great new cookbook, Texture Over Taste. We also talk about how he ranks fast-food burgers and foods from all 50 states. It’s really fun having Joshua in the studio, and we hope you enjoy this conversation.

Also on the show, Aliza and Matt talk about three things they each are feeling. In this episode, Bolivian Llama Party, Panettone Season, J. Kenji López-Alt’s Garlic Noodles, good book alert: Negatives: A Photographic Archive of Emo (1996-2006), the fried paw paws and more at Hainan Chicken House in Sunset Park, good fish alert: Hudson Valley Steelhead Trout.
